Cebu Marathon 2018 - Race Connections

Cebu Marathon 2018

The Cebu Marathon is an annual race, held in Cebu City, Queen City of the South, the Philippines. Designed to coincide with the Sinulog celebrations, it falls on the second Sunday of each year. A cultural and religious celebration of the country’s conversion to Christianity, Sinulog is the biggest festival in the Philippines, with a grand street parade lasting up to 12 hours, and Filipinos from all over come to participate in this vibrant display of colourful costumes, dance, music, and arts.

Now into its 11th edition, the Cebu Marathon is on of the biggest and sought after race in the region and in the archipelago . Runners can choose from the four categories: full marathon, half marathon, 10K & 5k Road Races.

The racing field is surprisingly small, with just a little over 4000 participants this year, so this is definitely one to consider, for competitive runners seeking to place in top 5 within their age group categories.

The marathon route starts and finishes at the Cebu Business Park, the city’s premier business district, passing the Provincial Capitol, Osmeña Blvd., Fuente Osmeña, Colon St. (the country’s oldest) and Sto. Nino Church and the SRP Tunnel along the way. Sinulog-themed music and dance displays dot the race route, and runners will certainly enjoy these culturally unique entertainment.
